Lee Conklin

Artist Lee ConklinFrom an early age, Lee iden­ti­fied him­self as an artist. He went to Mon­sey Gram­mar School and Spring Val­ley High School in New York state. He attended col­lege at Calvin Col­lege, a con­ser­v­a­tive church school in Grand Rapids, Michi­gan, and was called a beat­nik while there. He was the catoon­ist for the col­lege paper and was con­sid­ered a trou­ble maker for his avant-garde paint­ings and blas­phe­mous poetry.

Upon dis­charge from the army, Lee became acquainted with con­tem­po­rary San Fran­cisco poster art and moved to San Fran­cisco to try his hand. His work was an imme­di­ate suc­cess and he pro­duced posters from 1968 –1970 when he pub­lished a book of his draw­ing titled Viva La Mutation
